Natural shaving brushes are typically made with a variety of different hair types, each with its own unique properties. Some of the most common natural hair types used in shaving brushes include:
Badger: Badger hair is the most popular natural hair type used in shaving brushes. It is said to produce a rich, luxurious lather and is gentle on the skin. At Agent Shave we no longer stock Badger shaving brushes.
Boar: Boar hair is a less expensive option than badger hair. It is said to be more exfoliating than badger hair, which can help to prevent ingrown hairs.
Horse: Horse hair is a soft and gentle hair type that is often used in shaving brushes for people with sensitive skin
When choosing a natural shaving brush, it is important to consider the type of hair, the size of the brush, and the handle material. It is also important to consider your own personal preferences, such as how much lather you like to use and how soft or firm you like the bristles to be.
With proper care, a natural shaving brush can last for many years.
